On Wednesday 22nd September our party of 38 clients set off from Hydebank Wood at 10 am on our exclusive luxury coach bound for Enniskillen. En-route we stopped at Linen Green Moygashel shopping village, for some free time to browse the shops and have lunch.
After a quick pit stop it was back on the coach and off on the remainder of our journey to Enniskillen where we were warmly welcomed on arrival by Jackie at the Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel and Lodges. The Killyhevlin is situated overlooking the scenic Lough Erne where most of our rooms where allocated. After a quick check in it was time to hit the bar for some chill out time and sample some of their beautiful cocktails. At the Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel we had complimentary use of the Killyhevlin Health Club complete with indoor swimming pool, outdoor hot tub and Jacuzzi to name but a few, which some of our clients made good use off to relax and others booked in for massages and other treatments.
Our three-course evening meal in the hotel definitely did not disappoint either it was an absolutely gorgeous meal and the rest of the evening was spent relaxing in the lounge over some drinks with plenty of banter and craic.
Next morning after a huge Irish breakfast, the majority of us boarded the coach and made the journey to Donegal town while others stayed at the hotel and got pampered in the hotels Spa.
We had a pit stop at Belleek Pottery where some of us enjoyed the coffee and cakes whilst others enjoyed the time to view the gorgeous pottery and make a few purchases. In no time we were back on the bus and en route to Donegal town.
We had a few hours free time in Donegal town to take in the shops and view some beautiful pieces of Donegal tweed where some made a few purchases to bring home with them. On our journey back on the coach to the hotel we took in the lovely scenes of Kesh, Pettigo and Bally Shannon.
Back at the hotel we had another gorgeous meal and the rest of the evening was spent relaxing in the lounge over some drinks and catching up with friends.
As Friday morning dawned and after breakfast, we boarded the coach and took the short journey into Enniskillen for some retail therapy and a bite of lunch. Early afternoon we left Enniskillen and made our way home arriving safe and sound back at the Trust at Hydebank where everyone said their goodbyes.
Our thanks go to Michelle and the Board of Directors for organising such an enjoyable trip, and to our coach driver Shelley from Travel Solutions.
Until the next time............... Jim
